Stijn Ank: The Beauty I feel 

From the beginning, works seem to be probing into the inaugural instant, or into our distance to the real before it becomes a reality or a ‘world’. The body of work grows with the affirmative questioning of the way a 'stance' operates in that inaugural instant – before we notice anything – up to the moment where we seem to perceive something.

To trace this purity, which is incomplete and therefore perfect, we have to let our senses work, so we can go back to the moment where there is no significance, and when only sense is happening. It is close to nature that one can find these moments.

What is created is by no means an object with a meaning, but a nameless thing that can be a sensible catalyst for our senses to get to work. It’s some ‘thing’ that lets us feel the notion of consistency and beauty.
